Holiday Portraits with 'Father Christmas' Available at Arboretum's 'Cookies and Cocoa with Santa' Event Dec. 9


SUMMIT, NJ - Curious kiddos may want to check the guest book at Summit's Legendary Lodge, The Grand Summit Hotel, for a P. Noel or K. Kringle entry the weekend of December 9 -10, because it appears Mr. Claus is spending a precious, pre-Christmas weekend in the Hilltop City.

A day before he matriculates to The Village Green for an appearance at Summit's "Miracle on Elm Street" skating event, Jolly Old Saint Nicholas will be dropping by Reeves-Reed Arboretum (RRA) to enjoy some sweet treats, a bit of hot chocolate, and take a few snaps with all the children on the 'nice list' -- and those scrambling to get there -- at Wisner House.

The "Cookies and Cocoa" event, set for December 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., will see holiday portraits taken by local photographer Lisa Berkery for a fee of $15 per child for RRA members and $20 per child for non-members. Arboretum members only will be admitted from 10 - 11 a.m., with the general public welcomed from 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.

One-of-a-kind holiday wreaths and table top decorations, created by the Arboretum’s gardeners and volunteers, will also be available for those looking to deck their halls with boughs of holly.

For information, visit reeves-reedarboretum.org or call 908-273-8787, ext 1010.

Reeves-Reed Arboretum is located at 165 Hobart Avenue.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
